The 2009-2015 Honda Pilot is a good option. 4WD, rugged, spacious interior, doesn't look like a mom-mobile. It isn't uncomfortable like the body-on-frame SUVs are. It can seat up to 8.
If you have the guts to drive a minivan, the 2011-2017 Toyota Sienna AWD is worth a look. It'll be more comfortable and practical than the Pilot. I don't know howtreacherous your ranch is. I think it would handle some mud, but not up a steep hill. It's the only AWD minivan. More practical than an SUV, except with reduced towing. Many unibody (car-based platform) SUVs don't have any better off-road capability than the Sienna. It seats 7 with AWD, 8 for FWD depending on trim. I wouldn't go with the Chevy Traverse, Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Acadia, or Yukon because you won't have the same reliability and with the Suburbans/Yukons, you won't have the same comfort.
